New Hope Brand Coffee's Favorite Roaster May Also Be Our Favorite Barista!

New Hope Brand Coffee's Favorite Roaster May Also Be Our Favorite Barista!

As you may know New Harvest Coffee Roasters is the roaster of our New Hope Coffee. Well one of our roasters is also one "HECK OF A BARISTA"!

Devlin Rice will be competing in the Specialty Coffee Association of America's Northeast Regional Barista Competition in Pittsburgh this week. He has been working tirelessly perfecting his techniques and hisfabulous specialty drink for the competition.

I was invited by Gerra Harrigan of New Harvest Coffee Roasters to sit on two of several his review panels with some of Rhode Island's most respected coffee, food,and pastry artisans (I have to admit I was a bit Star Struck). When I walked in for the first time and sat next to the owners of Coffee Exchange and Seven Stars Bakery I though I was in the wrong room!

One behalf of the New Hope Diner Project I want to congratulate Rik Kleinfeldt owner and Gerra Harrigan Director of Business Development of New Harvest Coffee Roasters...

But most of all we want to wish Devlin Rice the best of luck and we are all behind you.
